At Hormead, we teach French in Year 3 and 4. Our aim is to instil a love of language learning and an awareness of other cultures. We want our pupils to develop the confidence to communicate in French for practical purposes, using both written and spoken French.
We aim to give pupils a foundation for language learning that encourages and enables them to apply their skills to learning further languages, developing a strong understanding of the English language, facilitating future study at their next school and opening opportunities to study and work in other countries in the future.
Our French scheme of work supports pupils to meet the National curriculum end of Key stage 2 attainment targets (there are no Key stage 1 attainment targets for Languages).
